Editorial Reviews

Step back in time for this taste of comedy from another era. Based on the old Polish variety theater called Kabaret Starszych Panow, or "The Old Gentlemen’s Cabaret," this cult comedy classic is renowned for its slapstick gags and absurd humor. Two entertainers in top hats and tails wreak havoc around town as they search for a venue for their "talents." The loose structure is an excuse for a collection of old-style comedy sketches, songs, and jokes from the old Polish cabaret scene. HEAT is a departure for Kazimierz Kutz, a renowned director of serious drama who began his long career as part of the famed Polish School of the 1950s.

Format: DVD
Upal (The Heat) is a Polish comedy that strongly uses ridiculous situations to create a fairly funny and entertaining movie. The premier asks two older men to watch the city during his absence. The men are entertainers, a poet and a composer, who know nothing of politics. They cannot refuse the premier so they accept his offer.

They set off to work in the uniforms provided, three-piece suits with top hats, to find the city in a heat wave. As they inspect the city, they meet a few men and women who all will play a role in the interconnected storyline. There is a blonde woman is followed by flocks of men who are seemingly hypnotized by her appearance. The woman working in the dinner has the eye of three men, including a diplomat from a foreign land who is offended there was no one to greet him when he arrived in the city. To top it off, a bus of nurses comes to the city to help the people suffering from the heat. Although it might not appear like they are all connected, they actually are.

Upal was filmed in 1964, but its setting is a decade or two older. All in all, the setting creates a very unique feeling that works well with the story. This is only complimented by the music, which includes the older gentlemen singing songs from time to time while the screen freezes.

Upal is a film that plays upon the ridiculous and silly to make an entertaining film. The older gentlemen work their way out of a several difficulties and provide us with more than a couple laughs along the way. Although the events in the story are far from reality, it's a fun movie. Forget your troubles and step back in time to an earlier era with Upal.
